Re: Always glad to inspire others
kooka:  thanks for the compliment, and again for the inspiration.  You inspire me quite often--I've said it many times before, but the posts by the "non-believers" hands down inspire the most on this site.  Alternate viewpoints are good for the soul.

Re: Science is, and has always been

Actually, Sira, while your concluding statement is true, the claim that religion is always at odds with science really isn't true. Certain theories might have caused a stir, but to make this very broad claim to blanket all the centuries is inaccurate, considering that quite a bit of science was conducted within the walls of monestaries and church-run universities. 

Consider Intelligent Design theory (a fancy name for that archaic science of "creationism").  Half of the religious world rejects it officially, clearly realizing that there's a difference between philosophy and science.  It's really a splinter faction of Christianity that tried to resurrect this theory, and through their dogged promotion are continuing to infect society with their misinformation, much to the chagrin of various Religious groups.

...and today the discoveries of subquantum physics challenge our notions (gained through our direct physical experience) about the very nature of reality...there is no longer any concrete physicality...foundation...on which to stand...to me it is a glorification of Spirit...or energy...or the "4 forces of Nature"...or whatever you like to call it...personally, I like to call it "Love"....

Science is, and has always been

a threat to the church. It gives people viable, provable alternatives to what the church views as being the cornerstones of faith.

That God created Man in his image. That God created the world from nothing.

But with knowledge comes power, and a perceived freedom from the religious rules that governed life. People no longer had to accept the truth that the church provided, because science had given them something new to believe in.

But what the church failed (fails) to see, is that true faith in God is not based on what He did, but rather what He stands for--love, hope, kindness. People don't have to believe in creationism to believe that God exists.

After all, someone had to create the apes...

A very good essay. You presented your thoughts in a manner that made a ton of sense. It is the Spirit that is the most important for me as well.   sam
